Head west on 79 in a short while you will hit Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.
These lakes are noted for excellent Crappie fishing amoung other things. Check out http://www.tennesseevalleyoutdoors.com/ for fishing reports etc.
Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley appear to be big long enough with enough flow for Stripers.
I'm sitting over here in Knoxville. We just had a great FLW bass tourney.
I believe your getting one on Kentucky Lake , you need to check it out, they put on a great show.
